I like the t-shirt bit.

Once sold about two dozen bologna sandwiches with tomatoes on them as Scarlet Bologna's. Got me from Deer Creek to Alpine in '89. People bought them just for the marketing, they were delicious though (homemade bread and all).

I'm sure they were, but I would have bought one just for the "fun" value. I always liked folks that did things like that at shows w/ a sense of humor. We all know that while there were plenty of "kind" folk, there were also a shitload of hustlers and scammers that were not so great.

Best "con" we pulled was getting to Nassau early one year and my buddy found an orange vest and so began to start collecting parking money. After about an hour we went and bought a keg and walked around giving out free beer with the keg in a shopping cart. Yes, it violated some laws and probably pissed off some, but then again, the people that got free beer were thankful.

Yea those scam artists were terrible. I remember some guy was advertising multi-dimensional time warp gates for 2 bucks and when I gave him the money all I got was this tiny piece of perforated paper that he made me eat so I couldn't get a refund. Boy did I feel dumb for about a half hour.

I hate bologna and would have bought one from you based on that pitch. Priceless. Kinda like this 12-13 year old who came to my door for halloween last year. He was dressed as a giant magnet and a baby chicken taped to him. he said he was a "chick magnet." I laughed so hard I dumped the entire thing of candy in his bag and turned off the lights for the night. Nothing was going to beat that.
